A True "Poe" Story.

He was sent to West Point (He didn't want to be there) One day the art class was "On Location" outdoors near a bridge. They were supposed to draw the bridge(a military exercise)
Poe got done drawing,showed it to the Teacher, it was Not what his teacher wanted!
Poe had drawn the bridge but sitting on the bridge were two boys fishing from the bridge!
"Get rid of those boys!", Said the instructor.

Poe returned with the changed drawing. He had done it His way (not unlike the Poe of his future self! )
The boys were erased from the bridge.
Replaced by two graves on the river bank.

Maybe 30 yrs. ago a man found a small book in a deserted ancient building , once a General Store, then being used as a corn crib, Edgar A. Poe's writings.
This book was "self-Published" (Poe paid to have it printed) I think the finder got something like $380,000 for it?

I found this cool lunch box at a haunt trade show I went to in OKC. I had the lunch box about 30 minutes before my daughter took it home. She's lucky I love her so much.
